Article Summary:

Former AAU teammates Zion Williamson and Ja Morant went 1-2 in the 2019 NBA Draft, Williamson to the Pelicans and Morant to the Grizzlies.

*At least if you ignore New Orleans’ ability to take Morant over Williamson. A team taking Morant No. 1 seemed nearly impossible at the time. Though hindsight says Morant would have been the better choice, that’s at least partially based on Williamson’s injury issues.
